As California remains the proverbial battlefield for GMO labeling, an increased interest is growing over ways to actually start avoiding GMOs in your daily life. By far the best tip, which may not be applicable at all times, is to stick to high quality organic sources. Preferably 100% organic or locally grown by organic-based farmers. This certainly is not always an option, so I’ve compiled a quick ‘cheat sheet’ of the top genetically modified crops and substances that you can remember when avoiding GMOs in your daily life.

Produce items like yellow squash and papaya are considered by many worldwide to be health foods, however chances are that these food items among about 8 others I will be discussing today are heavily modified. Keep in mind that Monsanto is continually on a mission to dominate virtually 100% of the food supply, having already conquered upwards of 90% conservatively of staple crops like soybeans and corn.

A number of non-organic food products actually do exist that are free of GMOs, but it is important to learn the deceptive marketing tricks used by fake ‘health conscious’ brands who wish only to trick you into purchasing their GMO-laden garbage. As it was revealed back in October of 2011, many ‘eco-friendly’ brands are actually sporting the presence of GMOs within their products. Even products that have a “Non-GMO” label on their package! That’s right, it’s vitally important that the Non-GMO product sticker states that it is “verified” by the Non-GMO project or another source. Otherwise, it has been found to be a worthless claim.

Is it any wonder then that many of these ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘natural’ producers like Kashi have actually dished out millions of dollars to fight against GMO labeling in California? It becomes increasingly more clear which companies simply do not care about your health when you examine who owns them at the highest level. Kashi, for example is owned by Kellogg. You can actually view the chart on our site that shows which mega corporations own many phony ‘natural’ entities.

Top List for Avoiding GMOs

Outside of avoiding these companies and doing your best to purchase organic produce that starts with the number 9 on the PLU code sticker (the sticker on fruits and vegetables), here are 10 foods that are the most likely to contain GMOs that you should avoid when not consuming an organic source:

1. Corn

2. Soy

3. Sugar

4. Papayas

5. Aspartame (yes, aspartame is genetically modified! It was revealed back in the 90s in a little-known report).

6. Canola

7. Zucchini

8. Yellow squash

9. Dairy (more than 1/3 of non-organic dairy products in the United States still contain Monsanto’s genetically engineered hormone known as rBGH. Made from cloned DNA, the hormone is currently banned in over 27 countries).

10. Cotton (in the form of cotton oil).

Until proper legislation is enacted to label or ban GMOs entirely, it’s important to protect yourself and your family on a daily basis from the effects of genetically altered food staples.

    This is what is coming up! Total obrlitaration of any food supply but first they have to modify the present food, but as they gain some "camp' then they will go on to the next phase which is pills …yes, you will have a meal thru pills. It will not be as satisfying but will provide enough for you to live. Like remember when water was good? and now many making money out of sale bottle of water…by the way, chemtrails has aluminun which they don't know the outcome but is an attempt to control (the first intent was to control weather? ha) has dna which attach to another being and make it subject to transformation…unaware? go youtube and check for chemtrails conferences.

    Amazing information! Thanks for doing the research and keeping us informed.

    Thanks also to Kristie for enlightening us on "organic" but not necessarily GMO free!

  • Kristie

    thank you for the article,, but please dont forget that they can say organic but be GMO,, organic means that they do not use herbicides or pesticides but it never says not GMO,, only if it says GMO project certified,, or GMO free,, otherwise you can be in for lots of trouble. Good companies have been bought out by criminal ones and its hard to tell what they are doing.

    I had to laugh as I read the other day that on Romneys jet he has nothing but healthy food,, he has Kashi cereals,, that is where I laughed and laughed as Kashi was just busted for using GMO crap in their food,, so eat up Romney, maybe someone does not like him very much so they sneak that crap in. And dont forget that Obama would not eat GMO or feed it to his kids,, I bet they used to but they dont anymore.

    Thanks for the information,, Have a great day!!

    Thank you for the Educations! It is so vital for all of us, to know about GMOs! Nearly every thing we buy, is laced with products who are treated with them! I safe all Seeds from my home grown Veggies, to maintain a good source and keep them for next year planting ..and share! I guess, the only way to succeed!

    That PLU misinfo has been debunked long ago. That is akin to labeling which is illegal in the US.
